The possibilities for this are endless, saving electricity is one immediate benefit that I can see with real-time and historical energy metrics. Also, no more having to manually switch lights on and off which let’s face it is something while minor would be nice not to have to do. Having dimming and remote control while you are not home over your smartphone are also another couple of benefits.
Initially, control will be provided via IOS, no doubt an Android version will follow.
The one downside I see is that you would have to keep you phone with you at all times in your home to use the product? I think it would be better suited to smart watches which with the way the market is probably going to be addressed by Apple, Samsung and others.
Zuli are currently looking for funding via Kickstarter and have nearly hit their target. Definitely, one to watch, I’m sold already!
